While I think it’s okay to indulge once in a while, I’m always trying to make my favorite recipes healthier.  I mean, why not enjoy a delicious carrot cake that tastes just like the real thing, but has only healthy ingredients.  I feel a lot less guilt while enjoying a slice.  How can a “healthy” cake be moist and delicious?  Well, it can.  And this Healthy Carrot Cake is just that!

There is no refined sugar on this recipe, instead I used raw honey.  It’s sweeter, meaning you need less of it.  Plus, it’s all-natural.  Raw honey isn’t filtered, strained, or heated above natural hive temperatures (usually 115 degrees Fahrenheit), a process used in conventional honey that can destroy beneficial enzymes, nutrients, and antioxidants.
